As internet security becomes more important - and challenging - than ever before, companies are in need of experienced hackers to help them test out and improve their networks.

These people are known as ethical hackers, and there's big money out there for anyone who has the skills to point out vulnerabilities and fix breaches in a company's servers. Yes, just like in Mr Robot.

Our Become an Ethical Hacker Bonus Bundle has been one of our most popular online courses on ScienceAlert Academy to date. So to get you motivated to increase your skills in the lead up to the holidays, we're offering it for US$49.

During the course, you'll learn the basics of ethical hacking, get familiar with Linux, and learn some of the lesser-known hacking methods. You'll also get advice on how to turn your hobby into a lucrative career.
